These anime characters aren’t afraid to show off their enormous wealth to those around them.
Even though anime is a way to get to the fantastic, these shows show how the real world could be better. The characters’ abilities often show how their quirks are bigger than life. Sometimes, though, it shows up in terms of money.
In anime, there are a lot of characters who are very rich and powerful. They have so much money they can go anywhere and buy anything they want. Even though this is usually a good way to move the story along, you can’t help but wonder how someone could have so much money to waste.
Yumeko Jabami – Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler
Yumeko goes to a posh private institution. Because only wealthy families can afford to send their children to such schools, this is a strong indicator of her economic status. This is especially true of the more prominent institutions. But it’s in her pastime that her actual wealth shines through.
This anime is all about gambling, and Yumeko is rich characters addicted to it. She constantly throws herself into high-stakes games to get her adrenaline fix. That habit would be detrimental if she didn’t have the funds to fuel it and the skills to back it up. As such, she likely won’t run out of cash anytime soon.
Bulma – Dragon Ball
With a monopoly on the market, innovation can pave the road for success. Bulma and her family run the Capsule Corporation, which is capable of condensing machines and even entire buildings into pocket-sized capsules. These devices are used all over the world, providing Bulma with unending wealth.
Only her brains matches her wealth. She can pursue any scientific notion that comes to mind, making her a useful resource for the Dragon Ball heroes. She creates a variety of tools for their expeditions. These include the Dragon Radar and a time machine. Furthermore, she does so with no guarantee of reward because her discoveries are never commercialized. Bulma actually has more money than she knows what to do with.

Pegasus – Yu-Gi-Oh!
This flashy hunk also struck gold with a mining scheme. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, Pegasus is a rich characters who invented the Duel Monsters card game, which serves as the franchise’s cornerstone. Everyone and their mother plays this game, each with their own deck and regularly challenging each other. Although Pegasus copied the idea from Egyptian monster battles, the pharaohs did not technically patent it.
As a result, Pegasus gained greatly from his “innovation.” He owns a vast island with dozens of automated stadiums and a fortress. This serves as the battleground for his tournament, which attracts competitors from all over the world via cruise ship. I’m curious what the silver-haired devil did to spend the time before this game came around.
Daisuke Kambe – Fugou Keiji Balance: Unlimited
One also has to ask how a character with a cop’s pay made the list. Daisuke, on the other hand, comes from a wealthy family. The Kambe family is involved in numerous companies and political operations. Their most recent recruit merely joined the police force out of boredom.
His resources make him absurdly overqualified for the job. He not only receives specialized training in England, but he also brings luxury jets and expensive suits to the celebration. Once on the force, he uses cutting-edge technology such as lie-detecting glasses and bribery to obtain information. These tactics demonstrate how little Daisuke values money: it is merely a tool in his arsenal.
Mina Tepes – Dance In The Vampire Bund
These guys ought to be well off after centuries of accumulating wealth. Mina descends from the Tepes family of vampires. Aside from the obvious Dracula nod, this means she has noble blood. Once she steps out of the shadows, literally and figuratively, she has plenty of money saved up.
What’s more, she wastes no time in showing it off. Like Pegasus, Mina owns an island. Maybe that’s a rite of passage for rich people. In addition, she pays off Japan’s national debt and works to establish it as an independent country by importing various businesses. Again, she does all of this out-of-pocket. At least the Tepes heir puts her money toward a good cause.
Sinbad – Magi: The Labyrinth Of Magic
This sailor has the support of both the monarchy and the economy. Sinbad achieves the greatest possible results from his ocean voyages. He begins by conquering the seven mystical Dungeons, which are labyrinthine structures reserved for the most daring adventurers. Each one grants him significantly more wealth.
Sinbad puts his profits to good use after clearing these gauntlets. He establishes his own kingdom, “Sindria.” He runs the Sindria Trading Company from here, generating additional revenue. It is so successful that it has driven out the larger trade businesses. In a nutshell, Sinbad achieves the ideal balance of plunder and free enterprise.
Nagi Sanzenin – Hayate The Combat Butler
For example, the Sanzenin family invested 20 million yen in a bogus business investment purely for fun. That shows how wealthy they are right away, and young Nagi continues to flaunt their wealth at exclusive beach parties and other outings for friends. She tosses money at her troubles on a regular basis, partly because she doesn’t want it.
Everyone else, however, does. Numerous crooks are after Nagi for ransom. She’s either the only game in town or the biggest fish in town, and everyone wants to get their hands on her. In any event, her money is continually attracting unscrupulous attention. This makes it ironic that she eventually loses her inheritance. Come and go as you please.
